Red Devils off to a perfect start



The Bradford softball team remained unbeaten with a 7-2 non-conference win at Burlington on Wednesday.

The Red Devils (5-0) got all the offense they’d need with a two-out, four-run rally in the first inning.

Sydney Strelow went 2-for-2 with two RBI, Katy Croeker was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI, Peyton Cartwright had two hits and an RBI and Ally Bonifiglio notched a pair of hits.

Every batter in the order reached base at least once, Bradford coach John P. Ruffolo said.

Strelow improved to 3-0 in the circle with a complete-game effort, allowing five hits with two strikeouts and four walks. The Red Devils played error-free defense, led by Bonofiglio in right field and Jadynn Powell at shortstop, Ruffolo said.

Whitnall 14, Wilmot 1

The visiting Panthers dropped to 0-3 in the non-conference defeat.

Kalyssa Koehn doubled for Wilmot, and Sami Christiansen drove in Hayli Richards for the team’s lone run.


Tremper 3, Canandaigua (N.Y.) 1;

Tremper 4, Shawnee (N.J.) 3

The Tremper baseball team snagged a pair of close victories on its spring trip to ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla., on Wednesday to improve to 6-0.

Against Canandaigua, Nate Renner went 3-for-3 and gave Tremper a 2-0 lead with a two-run single in the bottom of the first.

Andrew Freiberg and Renner combined on a three-hitter, with Freiberg racking up six strikeouts with no walks in five innings to get the win.

Two errors and two hit-by-pitches opened the door for Tremper to score all four of its runs in the top of the third against Shawnee.

Garrett LaBreche had three of the Trojans’ five hits — including a double — and Stephen Schmidt also doubled.

Tyler Moilanen worked four innings for the win, with Hunter Weddel working three scoreless innings for the save. ... A 5-3 inning-ending double play on a hard-hit ball to Renner at third helped Tremper escape trouble in the bottom of the fifth.

“Our team is improving and playing with a competitive energy you need to be among the best,” Tremper coach John Matera said.

The Trojans conclude their Florida trip against Rancocas (N.J.) at 7 a.m. today.

St. Joseph 11, St. Thomas More 3

Kyle Matrise’s grand slam keyed the visiting Lancers to a Metro Classic Conference win.

Jake Schuler had a double and three RBI, while George Zeller and Jacob Charon each doubled and drove in a run as St. Joseph improved to 2-3 both overall and in the Metro Classic.

Alex O’Lear gave up two unearned runs with five strikeouts in five innings for the win, and Kade Cable and Jake Reigel each worked an inning to close it out.
